CFHI is committed to working globally and addressing inequities. In line with this global lens, it is the policy of CFHI to actively seek a diverse pool of candidates from a variety of backgrounds who are committed to the mission and vision of CFHI. Scholarships will be given to students who demonstrate a commitment to their communities as well as financial need and an interest in exchanging ideas and sharing experiences with people in Bolivia, Ecuador, India, Mexico and South Africa. Priority will be given to people of ethnicities under-represented in CFHI programs, as well as those who have had limited opportunity to travel abroad. All interested in attending a CFHI program during the specified program months/year and who are financially able to pay the remaining program feesalong with their own airfare are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to those who apply for scholarship consideration as well as submit an application to a CFHI program online. Scholarship applicants wishing to attend any CFHI program in Latin America (Mexico, Bolivia, Ecuador) must meet the language eligibility requirements listed for that program.
